DIY American Girl Doll Fidget Spinner

DIY American Girl Doll Fidget Spinner

The crew and I went on vacation recently and for the most part, we stayed off of social media and the blog. When we got back, our inbox was FULL of fidget spinner requests. There were over a thousand requests for us to craft one! So, if you requested one and your name isn’t on the shout out in the video, I apologize. There was noway to do a shout out to all. However, if you keep requesting fun craft ideas, you’re sure to get a shout out soon! With so many requests, it would be crazy to pass up crafting a fidget spinner. We made a few for our dolls and they actually work. These things are pretty neat, even if you’re just crafting it for you and not a doll! If you like it, tell us! Maybe we can craft a few other fun versions!

Materials Needed:


  • Use colored paper or scrap book paper when printing out the template to give your spinner a cool design.
  • Use the top printable if you just want one or two spinners. Also, use this one if you want to make several spinners by using different colored paper when printing.
  • Use the second printable if you want a lot of spinners on the same paper.
  • If you can’t use a printable, freehand your spinner! You can draw your own spinner and cut it out using the same method in the video, just without the printable.

    Fidget spinners are very efficient given that they are used in combination with other treatments. But fidget toys alone do not cure anxiety,

    I made these and I was pretty disappointed with how they are made the toothpick didn’t poke through the paperboard nicely they kept braking? I ended up using a hammer and a nail to make a hole and because of the hole not all of them spin nicely.?? I had a few other problems that where my fault. But I am very pleased with the ones that spin nicely it is a cool craft and fun to use when it is finished but not as easy to make.

    The reason why I left it in the fridge is because once u make it its very liquidy so when u leave it in the fridge it becomes puffy oh and how I know so much about crafting is that I’ve been watching SO MUCH VIDS ON DIY ITS A PROBLEM now I know the professional stuff

    I found out another way to make puffy paint I know u made one a few years ago but my way has stuff that u can DEFINETLY get at home or nearby stores get 1 cup of water and pour it in the squeeze bottle and then add 1 cup of flour to the squeeze bottle then add 1 cup of salt and add it to the squeeze bottle mix it together and add food coloring when ur not using it put it in the fridge
